New River: Sounds of the Arizona Desert

I wrote the majority of this song while sitting on my sister’s couch in New River, Arizona in January of 2003. My sister was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and was dying on a mattress near the couch in her living room. There’s a better account of the circumstances in the lyrics of “Twelve Breaths”. Suffice to say that I was in a thoughtful mood and long walks in the cool desert are responsible for the sounds of this song.
